I just noticed you said you're "producing html" - I assume that means
<xsl:output method="html/>

If that's the case, don't forget that in HTML, a newline and/or
carriage-return are both considered
whitespace, so the output won't actually start a new line unless you
produce a "<br/>" element to
achieve a new line in a browser or other HTML rendering environment.

So assuming that your context node is "message", you would do this:

<xsl:value-of disable-output-escaping="yes"
            '&lt;br/&gt;', substring-after(.,'&#10;'),'&#10;')"/>

(kind of hideous...)

or this:

        <xsl:value-of select="substring-before(.,'&#10;')"/><br/>
        <xsl:value-of select="substring-after(.,'&#10;')"/>
